He also works as a Motion Graphics and Imaging consultant to individuals and corporations alike. In the 1980s and 1990s, Keith was videographer and photographer for commercials and industrial videos produced along the Front Range, and has appeared in some major film productions for MGM and Warner Brothers.

Keith West is going to share a glimpse into his years of experience with After Effects. Keith will first share with us a number of animations to demonstrate the abilities of this powerful software application. With our gears turning with ideas of how we might use this application in our very own projects, he will then give us a brief tour of the interface and share with us a tutorial of some specific After Effects techniques. Of course we will have plenty of time for some Q&A.
